Why Does God Test Us?

Every test by God is an invitation to transition from one narrative to another, from control to love, from orphan to son or daughter, from bondage to freedom, from fractured thinking to wholeness, from our perspective to His, from our best thoughts about who He is, to the truth about who He is, from our story, to the whole story; the one He is telling.

Put Your Sword Away

Peter believed Jesus’ kingdom on earth would need swords and men willing to use them. It would require sacrifice, the willingness to die for Jesus, and also, the willingness to kill for Jesus…

Heaven and Hell (Part 1)

For centuries now, much of the Western church has presented hell through the lens of sovereign control. And Atheism is its purest by-product.

Repent! The Kingdom of God is Within You

Yes, repent! Change the way you think until “righteousness, peace, and joy” are your reality; until the confidence of “on earth as it is in heaven” is your perspective; until you sense the arms of your kind and loving Father enveloping you and you grow sure in His nature to work all things to our good.

Why Can’t I Trust God’s Love?

If our theology is grounded in the idea that our good God is in control, then why does He allow evil, suffering and bad things?

Heaven and Hell (Part 2)

Everything is a matter of perspective. If we perceive light through unhealthy eyes we will see darkness. If we perceive truth through unhealthy eyes we will see lies. God is love and His love is sovereign, but if we see love through the lens of control we will experience striving and desperation.

Seven Reasons Why I Don’t Belong to a Political Party

In this highly charged political season of us and them, we must not find our belonging in a political party or persona. Otherwise, we become lost.

How to Read the Bible (Part 2)

Jesus is my lens, my true narrative. His perfect love is my conviction. His goodness is my faith. Every question I have, every relationship or circumstance, every scripture, including the tension Job represents, is measured against the measureless revelation of Jesus.

But What About Church Discipline?

If discipline isn’t about a father walking in humility, desiring the best for his child while mourning the fallen mindset, it will become punishment and there will be no life in it.

But What About Sin?

Yes, sin is a big deal, and our job as Christians is to remove the condemnation that is associated with it, not add to it. We are invited to, like Christ, release kindness, and walk people into freedom. “There is, therefore, no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus…” (Rom 8:1) That’s us! And I would add, ‘therefore there should be no condemnation from those who are in Christ Jesus.’ We can’t give away what we don’t have…

You Are A Spiritual Giant!

I absolutely love our gatherings, I’m a preacher who loves to preach. But I am leaning into this season as I believe God is raising our perspective to see as He sees. I believe God is changing our powerless small thinking and inviting the church to live powerfully in any room we might find ourselves in.
Even now, when fear is doggedly knocking at my door, I’m hopeful. Hope is my now and my future. And when it isn’t, I repent.

In Between

In Between

I am a newborn babe / The world is fresh and terrifying / “Incubator” and “Crib” are not words I care for / Put me against your breasts / Skin to skin / Heart to heart / All I want is one thing familiar / and it’s not in a box / It’s in your arms / For the love of God / do not put me in a box…

What A Wonderful World

What A Wonderful World

For me, the End Times is now, “on earth as it is in heaven” is my mandate, growing sure in love is my strategy, and being kind and faithfully loving everyone around me is my implementation.

Even now, when fear is doggedly knocking at my door, I’m hopeful. Hope is my now and my future. And when it isn’t, I repent.

One of the essential Tenets of Taekwondo is INTEGRITY. We will learn a little more about this word as well as complete a fun, craft challenge by using items we would normally just throw away.

EPISODE THREE  In this episode, we’ll introduce some of our family who’ll share why being creative is so contagious! Our special guest is Mary Clark who is not only the matriarch of this family but an expert quilter! You’ll learn so much more than art from her and leave encouraged!
